    Jack Daniels

    So I'm sitting here on a Friday night, sipping a Jack Daniels, thinking there must be a cycling connection between JD and bikes and therefore a reason to start a new thread.

    However, I can't think of one. For some reason, my thinking is a bit cloudy. Can I get a little help here?

    About a month ago I cycled from south Louisville to Bernheim Forest, and the route took me right by the Jim Beam distillery. Jim Beam is a competitor of Jack Daniels.

    So there you go. The connection is obvious.

    Im my cycling group one of the riders bike is named Jack and anothers riders bike is named Danielle. They usually ride side by side at the lead so therefore everyone in our group follows the riders on Jack&Danielle. There ride is always nice and crispy, not too easy, but at the same time not overbearing.

    I don't want to go off topic here, but I am sitting here on a Friday night sipping a red wine called "Bully Hill." That is all.

    Here's to sitting around on a Friday night and sipping an alcoholic beverage.

    Old No. 7 is aged in barrels. Barrels are round. Bicycle wheels are round.

    Sipping Jack Daniels feels good. Riding a bike feels good.

    I'd go on but just finished a bottle of merlot (had to have something to accompany the filet mignon, baked potato, corn on the cob & bread) and my brain is way too relaxed for word puzzles.

    Well, there is always the question of why are you sitting around sipping rotgut instead of going for a ride with Mrs.Jones.

    How about this, one reason some people take up cycling is because after an evening with Jack Daniels they run into problems with John Law?

    As CACycling states, Old no. 7 is aged in wooden barrels. Bicycle wheels used to be made from wood--even bicycles used to be made from wood--connection made.

    Dunno. The connection between the two has always been intuitive for me - never really analyzed it. I ride, I Jack.

    Certainly. I'm sitting after a pleasant weekend (Fri and Sat are the weekend here) which involved a couple of warm bike rides, and helping a pal reassemble a very nice Giant Talon 0, after his move here from Brisbane

    And my slurp of choice at the moment is Beefeater and tonic, lots of ice, lemon peel and a slice of lime. Like bikes, liquor should be white. Brown drinks are so 70s, all mustaches and crimplene suits with waistcoats. Not good.

    Glad to help.

    Now that it's the morning after the night before, I'm delighted with all the wisdom that shows up on the 50+ Forum, especially on critical matters such as spirits and such. I have no hangover this morning, because I was proactive enough to hydrate well last night.

    I am alarmed, however, at the amount of Jack which remains in the bottle. That can't be right. There has to be more than that.

    Perhaps the problem lies in not being able to satiate your taste buds with a less than real bourbon? I would suggest considering Willett Single Barrel Reserve, Woodford Reserve, Black Maple Hill 20 year old, Blanton's Barrel Proof, Eagle Rare17 year old, Buffalo Trace, Elijah Craig 18 year old, Jefferson's Presidential Select, Four Roses Single Barrel, Pappy Van Winkle, Booker's, Wild Turkey Rare Breed, or Ezra B Single Barrel as alternatives.

    It is the cat's fault the level isn't what you expected. Cats are well known to hit the bottle at night, that's way they sleep all day.

    You didn't mention Knob Creek. Would you include that on your excellent list, or does it also not quite make the grade?

    Some people collect wine. I collect bourbon. So, I only included those that are in my cabinet at present. Both MM and KC are, however, fine bourbons.

    Oh, and to keep this cycling related. I tend to "cycle" through them and not stay with one as a standard pour.
